PEST CONTROL INFORMATION
Rodents typically have a slender body with a scaled tail, and pointed snouts with prominent whiskers. Many rodents have elongated legs and feet allowing them to move with a hopping motion, while others have broad feet and strong tails to improve their climbing ability. They are most commonly some shade of brown in colour, although many have black, grey, or white markings. Rodents can be harmful, spreading diseases through their parasites and feces. They are known to invade homes for food and occasionally shelter.
How you can prepare prior to the treatment?
Please ensure general housekeeping is carried out prior to our service. Baits will be installed in enclosed roof spaces and internal areas such as cupboards and behind appliances and furniture. They also may be installed inside subfloors.
Preparing your home prior to our service will make our treatment work more efficiently.
How the service is carried out?
Our technician will firstly investigate the area that rodents have been sighted as well as areas where rodents like to inhabit. Once the habitation areas have been found, the technician will place baits down in the roof void or the sub-floor area out of your family's way. Once the rodent takes the bait it typically takes between three and five days for the active ingredient to take effect and for the problem to be eliminated. We also provide lockable rodent boxes as an alternative to the baiting process. Bait boxes come in two colours - standard black, or garden rock shaped and painted ready to be placed outside in the garden.
Rodents find ways to enter homes through tiny cracks and holes. They make nests in unused corners, and they can exist on crumbs. You may not even notice the presence of one or two, but if you aren't careful you could end up with a full-blown infestation on your hands. The key to preventing mice and rats from coming inside is to seal your home, clean out places where mice like to nest and remove their food sources.
